    Hello,

    To my knowledge there shouldn't be any binary files in /home/username/mail directory. I honestly can't say what would happen if they are removed, your best bet is to investigate how they got there. Research all logs and see if you can find that out.

    Hello :)

    It's not normal to see a file like that in the account's mail directory. Is it possible your system or the account was compromised at some point? You may want to consult with a qualified system administrator for assistance if you are unable to determine where the file came from.

    Thank you.
